Spacey is scheduled to be arraigned on January 7.
CNN has reached out to his attorney for comment.
The announcement coincides with Spacey posting a bizarre video to YouTube entitled, “Let Me Be Frank.” The title is a play on Spacey’s former “House of Cards” character, Frank Underwood.
“I know what you want,” Spacey says while staying in character as Underwood. “Oh sure, they may have tried to separate us, but what we have is too strong, too powerful. After all, we shared everything, you and I. I told you my deepest, darkest secrets. I showed you exactly what people are capable of. I shocked you with my honestly, but mostly I challenged you and made you think. And you trusted me, even though you knew you shouldn’t. So we’re not done, no matter what anyone says. And besides, I know what you want. You want me back.”
He also says, “I can promise you this. If I didn’t pay the price for the things we both know I did do, I’m certainly not going to pay the price for the things I didn’t do.”
His entire YouTube post is in character as Underwood, while Spacey is standing in a kitchen, wearing a Christmas apron and preparing a meal. The character was killed off in the sixth and final season of “House of Cards,” which released last month.
